Wind Smoothing

Hampton Wind Farm (NSW, Australia)

Wind energy is clean and has the potential to supply many times the total current global energy production. However, although wind energy is reasonably predictable, it is significantly variable.
The ramp rate that can be associated with generation of wind energy can create challenges for electricity utilities, independent system operators (ISOs) and regional transmission organisations (RTOs) trying to integrate renewable energy into the grid. The ramp rate also limit progress by wind farm developers. Read more about Wind Smoothing and Ramp Rate control at Hampton Wind Farm (NSW, Australia)
